HOW TO USE LOCERYL®

  • Toenails only grow about 1 mm a month (and fingernails grow about 3 mm a month),19 so it can be hard to spot improvement over short periods of time.
  • The sooner you start, the sooner you can show off your new healthy nails.

With weekly use, LOCERYL® 5 % will keep working until your healthy nail has regrown.

A mild infection on the fingernail may take up to 6 months to clear and for the healthy nail to grow out.

KEEPING NAILS HEALTHY

You can help your treatment work and prevent future nail fungal infections:

When using LOCERYL® 5 % Nail Lacquer

  • Be sure to file the nail surface before applying LOCERYL® 5 %.
    This will ensure maximum effect
  • Wipe the nail with the swab supplied after filing, to clean away any debris before
    application
  • One application 1 - 2 times per week
  • Apply lacquer over the entire surface of the infected nail
  • It is important to carry on using LOCERYL® 5 % Nail Lacquer until the infection has
    cleared and healthy nails have grown back

Other tips to help you keep your nails healthy

  • Treat athlete’s foot early, as it is caused by fungus that may infect
    the nails*
  • With any foot infections, also treat the inside of the shoes and slippers
    with fungal powder/spray
  • Keep hands and feet dry and clean at all times, because nail fungus
    prefers a moist environment
  • Wash feet daily and dry them thoroughly after washing, especially between the toes,
    where fungi grow best
  • Use a separate towel for feet to avoid infecting other parts of your body
  • Wear cotton or natural fibre socks; they help keep your feet dry
  • Change socks daily. Wash socks, towels and bathmats regularly
    at 60 °C to kill the fungus
  • Clean floor regularly to avoid re-infection and transmission to other people
  • Choose shoes that will not cause your feet to sweat and use open footwear
    whenever possible
  • Wear protective footwear in public showers or locker rooms to avoid
    contamination from floors
  • LOCERYL® 5 % Nail Lacquer is not used to treat athlete’s foot.
